Hard to believe that the year of the Mayan curse is finally upon us. You know, the year where the Mayan Calendar runs out on 12/21/2012 so we all assume its the end of the world. First thing I want to know is how did we actually arrive at that date considering the "calendar" has changed many times over the last 5000-6000 years. Is 12/21/2012 really the right date? And maybe the Mayans were simply predicting (optimistically) the end of their own civilization, which unfortunately ended way before the year 2012. I don't know what the real story is but we'll get to watch what happens up close this year and we'll all (hopefully) breath a collective sigh of relief when yet another doomsday story fizzles out. Stay tuned!!
Musical Soundtrack App for your Phone
Okay on to music news. I came upon this cell phone app that is a "soundtracking" app, which means it identifies and captures (or retrieves) song samples from your environment and allows you to pass them among your family/friends. Kind of like posting Facebook status (happy, sad, whatever) but with a musical note added to it. Sounds pretty neat to me (being musical and all :)). For more info check it out the full article here Soundtracking App for Cellphones .
That's all for today folks....in 2012 I'm going to try and post 3-4 times/week and spotlight some of my favorite new (and old) songs. You know the kind of songs that are so good they give you the chills when you hear them :) Have a great day and we'll talk soon!
